Catch of the Day

New, quick and simple were what I was thinking when I decided to make these for a beach party we are hosting this weekend. I wanted to do something besides beachballs, sunshines, flip flops and starfish. Now I just have to come up with a cocktail to match!

Crab Feast

These are a nice cookie compliment to a crab feast Anna is hosting for friends. I made the "button cookies" to help break up the color of all that red. I'm happy with the way they turned out. As you can tell, I couldn't quite figure out how I'd platter them, I'll leave that up to Anna.

Say Yes to the Dress

Have you ever seen that show? It's one of those I sometimes watch and don't understand why I wasted an hour. Anyway, these remind me of that show, just without the annoying friends, realtives and bridezillas.

Thanks to Kim for your order, and to Laura for keeping me company during this decorating session.

Fourth of July Cookies

I was going for fireworks when I made these cookies. Some people have said they are tye dye stars. Either way, they work to celebrate the 4th of July. Thanks to Tatyana for ordering these cookies. They were FUN to make!
